RUSSIAGATE, Trump licenzia l'FBI

Con una mossa disperata Donald Trump licenzia il capo dell'FBI Comey proprio mentre emergono nuovi particolari sui legami con la Russia durante la campagna elettorale.

 

Il direttore dell'FBI stava collaborando nell'indagine della commissione di inchiesta del Congresso, fornendo ai membri parlamentari il materiale che dimostra il coinvolgimento di Flynn - braccio destro di Donald Trump - nella pianificazione degli attacchi russi ai computer dello staff di Hillary Clinton.

Il licenziamento di Comey toglie alla commissione bipartisan l'unica fonte di accesso al materiale raccolto sul patto segreto Putin- Trump per portare quest'ultimo al potere negli USA.

Il licenziamento di Comey è un gesto dittatoriale che non ha precedenti nella storia americana, perché neanche Nixon ebbe il coraggio di fare altrettanto durante il Watergate.

 

Da POLITICO: 

Outside the committee’s secure office spaces Tuesday night, news of Comey’s firing was met with shock, and a tangible fear that members — after months of working to ensure the probe was bipartisan and credible — may have just lost their key ally. Despite treading across fiercely political territory, Comey has won at least grudging approval, if not high marks, from the committee’s Republicans and Democrats who saw him as one of the few adults in the room.

“I think it’s safe to say that Jim Comey had the trust of both Republicans and Democrats,” panel vice chair Mark Warner (D-Va.) said in an interview.

In Trump’s Firing of James Comey, Echoes of Watergate

The Watergate comparison was unavoidable. When Mr. Cox, the special prosecutor, subpoenaed Nixon for copies of White House tapes, the president ordered that he be fired. Both Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, refused and resigned instead. The third-ranking Justice Department official, Solicitor General Robert H. Bork, complied with Mr. Nixon’s order and fired Mr. Cox.

Democrats saw parallels. “This is Nixonian,” Senator Bob Casey, Democrat of Pennsylvania, said in a statement.
